Summary: A revenge drama that centers on the relationship between a father and daughter.
A shoe-smith Arun Sachdeva (Sanjay) is shattered when he discovers that his daughter, Bhoomi (Aditi) has been raped by Dhauli (Sharad) and his gang of three. The father and daughter grieve for a bit before planning revenge.
Distasteful as it may sound, rape and retribution are dominating Bollywood. After Maatr and Mom, Omung Kumar, who showed a spark with Mary Kom, seems to have fallen into the trap of making formula. And while every filmmaker argues that movies on rapes are ‘socially-relevant’, you keep asking yourself — is all the gore on screen justified?
Coming to the core plot, when Bhoomi gets raped just a day before her wedding, you know which route the film will take. The insensitive cops, the lame public prosecutor, the even lamer defence and the whole court-room drama where it has become fashionable to discuss the heroine’s virginity makes you want to scream. All and sundry are authorities on India’s rape statistics and the heinous act is so distastefully discussed that it almost knocks you dead.
